THE STORY:

It's been a life long dream to be able to run the Boston Marathon and I finally got that chance last year.

Unfortunatly, I did not get a chance to finish the race last year.  I had less than a mile left before I was forced to stop.

Because of what happend last year, I'm even MORE excited to run and finish Boston Strong!

This year, I will again be running for "Team Perkins" to raise money for Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, MA. 

I've been working at Perkins for over 2 years to help establish and run the Internet Radio Station, Radio Perkins

Check it out, it's pretty sweet!

www.perkins.org/radioperkins

OK, Back to the good stuff:

Perkins has been a one of the best experiences I could ever imagine and all of the students are absolutly amazing and completely awe inspiring. Please help them out by helping us reach our goal. It's really easy to donate and only takes a second.

Seriously, If you've made it this far and are still reading, you could have donated twice already!

So now you kind of have to.....

All I'm asking for is a donation of 26.2 dollars. More would be great, but I think a dollar per mile is fair, right?

Or you could do 52.4 for every mile I will race before the finish line!

If you donate $30 or more, I will give you a shout out on the Radio!

First Person to Donate $200 or more will win the running shoes from the Marathon Last Year signed by me!  

Thank you for all of your love and support and I hope to see you at the finish line!
